My silkie hen went broody back in January except for this batch was not fertile. The new roo she is in with doesn't seem to want to mate with her. Now she is broody again, and I left a few of her eggs in with her. I don't think they are fertile since I have not seen any mating between her and the roo. Any how, I took some of my Araucana eggs (tufted/rumpless) put about five of those under her, and two buff Ameraucana eggs. This time she should have chicks! I am crossing my fingers however that Snowball the ED roo maybe did do the deed once or twice.
